of a continued leaping into whatever the election he was taking me to. i ain't drinking, he said. once there is a hole in your stomach and starts leaking through you it's done. forget it, you're finished. i could believe that. he sighed and pressed his head against the window against what appeared to be an effort to study the maintenance crew more intensely. i haven't said. i raise my kids, i worked and went to church. what happened? what did i do? i've been st up and down with you. he twisted his attention towards me keeping the top of his head pressed against the window and said but he hasn't told me nothing. he licked his dry lips. you know, i would really like to get out of here. you know, at first i was perturbed that i was placed in a room with a psychiatric patient. but after awhile i grew to like him and as you probably know in the segment i read you i learned to go along with his confabulations and actually derived wisdom through this tragic event. there are times when i felt as if kevin was fully present, but i don't know that for sure of course. i don't know. now, i picked s
been a supporter of this legislation before he was elected to the house. senator merkley on our side, who is the sponsor of the bill, was the leader of this effort in his state of oregon when he was in the organizinthe oregon state l. so both of them, one republican, one democrat, have been champions of this bill since before they even came here to congress. they both played a critical role in getting it into our committ committee. and even though senator merkley left our committee to join the appropriations committee, he always kept on top of this. and with their help, we voted it out of our help committee, as i said, in july, a strong bipartisan vote, 15-7. 15-7. and i want to thank the president occupant of the chair -- and i want to thank the present occupant of the chair, the distinguished senator from connecticut, for all his support and help of getting this bill through. and we had support of th three senators from the minority. as i said, it was a great bipartisan vote, 15-7. so, mr. president, despite the passage of laws at the state and local levels, discrimination in the w
. uncertainty has cost our country 900,000 jobs since the 2010 election. i hope every member of the committee, democrats and republican alike, put away threats of future shut down and defall and focus efforts to help the economy grow. the house and republican and senate democratic budgets before us represent difference visions of the country. we can want bridge all differences, but i hope we make some progress that requires tough compromises. it is important to be honest with the public about the nature of the differences because to govern is to choose, and our budgets reflect different choices. the primary objection should be to immediately accelerate job growth and place the economy on a stable, long term foundation. the democratic budget does this by investing in national priorities, replacing the job killing sequester, and reducing the long term deaf silt in a balanced way. it provides vital investments to ensure america remains the world's economic power house. we allocate resources to put people to work, mod earnizing our schools, our bridges, our ports, and other infrastructure that fo

, soon there will be a new senator-elect from new jersey who will stand where i stood just a few months ago to be sworn in. when he takes his place in this body, he will be joining a long list of dedicated public servants who have served new jersey, stretching back to the very first congress. i would urge him to continue to work as hard for the people of our state as he did while serving as the mayor of new jersey's large of the city. and i know that he will always put the people of new jersey first. new jersey's new senator will have a very long list of priorities waiting for him when he arrives in walkers awferl them important. there is one area that will require his immediate and ongoing focus: that is new jersey's continued effort to recover and rebuild from the devastation of superstorm sandy, which struck my are state a year ago today. working together, new jerseyans have made incredible progress in coming back from what the storm delivered, but our work continues. for those who have suffered so much loss, a year seems like an eternity. they must know that until all of the damage

election campaign last year, and neither candidate made a major speech on poverty. actually, one candidate did. he talked about 47% of the population. [laughter] but with that exception, neither candidate addressed the problem. obama started to calm made a very interesting speech at the 15th anniversary commemoration of martin luther's kings "i have a dream" speech and he did talk about poverty. he talked about the fact that if you're going to deal with the issue of social justice, he had a coal poverty in america but obama is now talking about it but the question is that it was political momentum behind it. it will result in the programmatic change. probably not unless people like you and me and everybody else that cares about the issue pushes it because the default is if you don't push it, it's easier not to talk about it. .. it is one out of every four american children is 4 and one out of three african american children. talk a little bit about child poverty and the impact of poverty on the lives of children in this country. >> guest: you are right on all the data you gave. the categor
for the next year and in early 2005 the iraqi people were holding their first elections and we had removed saddam hussein from power and they were having their first elections to vote on the constitution. later in the year they actually elected their first leader and first president and there is a lot of change and turmoil and a lot of unrest, people didn't know what to expect from the future and we were right there in the middle of it. my job and actually i was in task force in baghdad and i was the public affairs nco for the third infantry division, which meant that i worked with the media and sent out press releases and i answered calls from good folks like you and "the new york times" and i was the typical army spokesperson lives there. so i was hoping to tell the army's story to folks back here. the kind of information that the media was looking for was of course to confirm any information about a big incident that went down, if there was an ied or a roadside bomb that went off. if there were casualties, they would like to know how many and who is skilled and things like that. also th
for seven years, was finally kicked out in the late name eason 2000, but was elected in what everyone pretty much everyone needs for and fair elections but elected back into mexico's white house. so could you give us a sense of how u.s. and not fair, as someone who follows mexico, as the mexican and american reporter in your role, how do you see this first year? what has or hasn't happened? >> more than anything as a foreign correspondent, it has meant a real effort on the part of the new government to change the narrative, to change the storyline from just violence to other aspects of mexico, which is very fair. mexico also has some very precise. there's some regions like the central mexico, where you have one thing interesting. you see the types between texas and mexico. the number of times i talked to mexican mainstays who are somewhat linked to the labor market and say i'll ask them. they say your grand parents, like your fathers, et cetera. they say yes, but more out of curiosity than necessity. that makes you think about the long-term immigration trend. whether americans will someday m

for the presidential election and, therefore, that vote certified that the american people would support and wanted the obamacare law. first of all, that wasn't the primary, it was one of the issues that was a determinative factor in the outcome of that election but not nearly "the" factor. because most americans at that point still had not had the opportunity or the experience of -- of -- that they're having now and finding out exactly just how this law works and does not work, finding out all the dysfunction and learning that all of those campaign promises made, or promises made when the law was passed, have simply been broken. you can keep the insurance policy that you have now -- no problem. won't cost a penny more. no problem. on and on it goes. keep the doctor that you want. americans are finding out that none of this is true. premiums will not rise. premiums are rising for many, many americans. this will be easy -- go to a web site, sign up, punch in, put your name in, you're onboard, everything's great. none of this has worked. so why not delay this process? not just to learn more about wha

with john john. when was the gain secret that john kerry get elected light traffic he just lied, apparently people would whisper in his ear and tell them secrets. and you know something, as you go through that book, there is not one i'm attractive picture taken, which has got to be part of the kennedy appeal. everybody is so beautiful. >> host: you the picture that mrs. kennedy said was her favorite of the two of them together in the back of a car. why was this her favorite track to she told stanley, this is a photograph taken in the white house limousine coming back from blair house to the white house, and the president is reaching over and taking a hair that had blown, putting it back into place. mrs. kennedy told stanley that it was the most intimate and affectionate photograph that they ever had. and it was spontaneous. john f. kennedy in public was very, very reserved. no public display of affection, rarely held his wife's hand can't even after the inaugural speech, he didn't kiss his wife as most presidents do. so this was an important picture to jackie kennedy. >> host: you have a pi
to four years. spent raisingis money for the next election. they're not able to focus on the job that they were elected to come here to do. host: you say you are an old senate staffer. on your twitter page, you talked about the last time divided chambers came up with a budget agreement. can you talk about the history of that? guest: yes. let me try to explain it very carefully. createdet act that was in 1974 set up the process. there was a budget committee in the senate. they created the congressional budget office. that has been in effect for 30 and almost 40 years. every year we pass a budget and go to conference and agree to it. the last time there was no agreement was when we had a divided congress and the house was under democratic control and the senate was under republican control. the last time we had an agreement with a divided congress was 19 86. here's a picture. what are we seeing? guest: you are seeing the chairman of the senate budget committee. the senate was under control of republicans at that time. he was the chairman of the senate budget committee. andsee mysel
spawned after the 1824 election, ect., whether you talk about the tea party, they all have to get absorbed somehow, and so it's not just -- it's not going to be sufficient. in fact, it's counter productive and silly, really, frivolous, to suggest we ignore the tea party because robert taft wouldn't recognize them. these movements, in our system -- go back and look at the presidential electoral tallies in the early part of the depression including during franklin roosevelt's time, the number -- the vote tallies for the socialist and communist parties in america were beginning to be rather significant, not necessarily in percentage terms, but in body terms, significant body of political sentiment. roosevelt brilliantly blanched that boil and brought it into the mainstream. that's what report taft of today would have to do, and that's why i kind of reject the thrust of your question. >> yeah, i'd like to say something if i can. i was -- i -- today i'm between the tea partyers and the others, and i was then, and i remember talking to john ashbrook as he was preparing to launch primary campaign
. as our democratic friends like to see these days elections matter. and the president explicitly, explicitly states his reelection on the back of these bipartisan spending cut. i mean just look at the exit polls from november. a majority of americans that the government was doing to match. about two thirds as raising taxes to cut the deficit was a nonstarter. compared to obamacare which more voters said they wanted to repeal these bubbles that supporters straight game. so if our friends on the other side want to keep trying to climb an electoral mandate for obamacare contradicted by the facts as that may be while using their own logic, we then have to call the mandate reducing the size of government a super mandate a super mandate. that is either new plan to undo the cuts the president campaigned on and increase the debt is so outrageous. we hear the senior senator from new york was to announce a proposal to give the president permanent power to borrow more. another was he wants to extend the debt ceiling permanent
man. he was the first republican to be elected to the united states senate from mississippi since reconstruction. a few years ago, he was named by "time" magazine as one of the 10 most effective members of the senate and they called him "the quiet persuader." and for those of you who recently arrived at the senate, if you haven't had any dealings with senator cochran yet, you will find that, indeed, he is the quiet persuader. in fact, it may be the secret to his success. though he's had an extraordinarily accomplished career here in the senate -- and i just wanted to take a few moments to congratulate him, not only on his service to his state and the nation but to our institution. [applause] mr. harkin: madam president, i suggest the absence of a quorum. the presiding officer: the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: the presiding officer: the majority leader. mr. reid: i would ask consent the quorum call be vitiated. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. reid: mr. president, i'm sorry i'm a little late here, i say to my colleague, the senior senator from mississippi, bu
is no elected legislature, has no interest in bowing and scraping to their planter class. indeed, they are kind of nervous about the planter class a little bit, so having this particular element of freed blacks, the british officials seem to be in their interest. they might use it at the planters make trouble. they could use if slaves rebelled. so they made clear to these former con marines if there's a slave revolt they were supposed to help suppress it and they're supposed to catch runaways and not receive them into their communities. so it's only in the 1830s the british will make a concerted effort, parliament passes law for the gradual emancipation through this kind of stage of apprenticeship for enslaved people in west indies. often they get impatient and they will rise up. and demand more immediately. so it is a little tangled process but it is true that the british pull this off without a civil war. but that's fairly easy to do when the political center is in london and the planter class has only limited power by the 1830s, in parliament. much less so than it appeared that andrew has st
't share them, and that's difficult. it's difficult as elected officials, difficult as policymakers to do that, but i think to always respond with, yeah, just one more process, one more level of oversight, six more ig's inspecting igs is not going to get us to the answer that i think sometimes policymakers suggest we can get to. with that, i want to talk about an only budsmen. there's what you talked about, there's an only -- an buds man. who would the client be? i assume it's a lawyer, and, second, where in the constitutional frame work would we place this person if we were going to try too put someone there to protect the notion of privacy? >> well, i think you hit two of the difficult constitutional issues. the ones of standing, whether or not that is a permanent position within the fisa court could have standing and where they fit within the three branches of government. the suggestion we looked at and thought might be the most useful is a case-by-case determination by the court of appointing and amicus to raise the point of view that may not be raised by parties before the court, be
and discrimination during election campaigns. i would like to ask the prime minister, mr. speaker, whether he will back our call to get political parties the electoral commission and equality and human rights commission to work more proactively now in areas of tension so that the next general election can be a battle of ideas and not raise hate and discrimination? >> i very much welcome what the honorable lady says. and i welcome the report of your parliamentary inquiry into electoral conduct. i will study the report and if there is anything we do cross party cooperation we take racism out of politics we will certainly do so. >> thank you, mr. speaker. thanks to the government's regional growth, 8 million is reopening the rail, cutting travel times between birmley and manchester in half. better rail connections to the south of england are also vital. does the prime minister not agree with me it is absolutely outrageous for the party opposite to challenge hs-2 at current time putting in jeopardy and jobs an investment in the north of england? >> i think my right honorable friend is absolutely
don't know what is happening in your name and what your elected representatives are doing. >> we have two minutes left. so if somebody has an easy question? >> the questions are always easy. it is the answers. >> i hope it is an easy question. it may not be an answer yet and that is how the liability issue that was mentioned with regard to the new framework may play out and i wanted to ask about the broad community, many of whom see themselves as security researchers, who report zero days when they find vulnerabilities. i would like to know what the panel thinks of that community. is there a place for a crowd sourcing of vulnerability is? what do you think? >> who wants to jump in on that? >> take the financial sector as an example. there are 20 different laws that relate to customers information region terms of liability they are the most obvious, you have 1999 fair credit reporting act, the electronic funds transfer act, write to financial privacy act which protect information against government access, consumer protection act, all sorts of ways in which liability is encouraged and
. and was just yesterday elected to serve as the vice-chairman of the mortgage bankers association. in addition, bill is former vice chairman of the mbas residential board of governors. ladies and gentlemen, mba 2014 vice-chairman, bill emerson. [applause] >> oh, yeah. u.s.a. springsteen fan? i know i am. we are close to but anyway, thank you. good morning, everyone. welcome to the second general session. it's an honor and privilege to be here this morning to begin my mba and executive service during the year of the mba's 100th anniversary. i'm excited be serving our membership with such a great team of professionals. now all as interim know too well, 2013 has been a year of regulatory implementation. many of the new rules we're incorporating agribusiness operations were a direct result of 2010 dodd-frank act.

election in november if you were for obama white house, or democrats. but after that we had been in a very tough situation, and yet i have been privileged to be part of working out a compromise deal in the lame duck that probably didn't make anybody, or definitely did not make anybody entirely happy. didn't make us and many democrats have the because we extended some of the tax lead at the top that we did not think were probably the most fiscally responsible thing to do, but we did it in a context where we extended long-term unemployment, the aztecs with and a new payroll tax cut. and we surprise markets and growth was actually lifted up a half% almost never. the beginning of 20 i think we're looking at 3% growth. i understand things happen. right after that. right after that. i barely remembered where the bathroom was when you had both the developments in the middle east raising gas prices, you had the unprecedented natural disaster in japan that had a much, much deeper and more harmful effect on the global economy and the supply global supply chain than anyone expected. those are the thi
cost our country 900,000 jobs since 2010 election. and i hope every member of the committee, democrats and republicans alike will focus our efforts to help our economy grow. a houston republican and some senate democratic budgets have very different visions for the future of the country. we're not going to be able to resolve the differences, but i hope that we can make some progress and that will require tough compromises. it's also important to be honest about the nature of our differences because to govern is to choose and our budgets reflect different choices altogether. the primary objective of this should be to immediately accelerate job growth in place our economy on a stable and long-term foundation. democratic budget does this by investing in national priorities and reducing the long-term deficit in a balanced way. it provides for vital investment to ensure that america remains the world's economic powerhouse. we allocate resources to put people to work and modernize our schools and our bridges and ports and other infrastructures that are the backbone of our economy. these inve
, as an elected insurance commissioner, as head of the national association of insurance commissioners and as a two-term governor and now as hhs secretary, i have worked on that effort that i care deeply about. there are still millions of americans who are uninsured as well as underinsured. people who have some coverage at some price for some illness but have no real protection from financial ruin and no real confidence they'll be able to take care of themselves and their families if they have an accident or an illness and for them a new day has finally come. in these early weeks, access to healthcare.gov has been a frustrating experience for many americans including many who have waited years for security of health insurance. i am as frustrated and angry as anyone with the flawed launch of healthcare.gov. let me say directly to these americans, you deserve better. i apologize. i'm accountable to you for fixing these problems. i'm committed to earning your confidence back by fixing the site. we're working day and night and will continue until it's fixed. we recently added new managemen
are gone. my successor and elected insurance republican commissioner sandy kraeger and i worked on a whole series of plans to expand coverage. i did work on these issues and we were not necessary -- >> you say these were lousy plans and miss tavenner said no true insurance. do you think the plans weren't true insurance? >> in the individual market, the insurance commissioner in kansas and virtually every place in the country -- >> it's a yes -- >> it's a yes or no question. were they true insurance plans? >> a lot of them are not true insurance plans, no. >> i yield back. >> gentleman from vermont. >> i'm going to summarize what i've been hearing. number one, the website must be fixed. you've been very forthright and you're going to fix it. number two, we've had a real battle about health care, had a battle in this congress. it was passed and the president signed it and the supreme court affirmed it, a brutal battle. there was an election people where the american people affirmed it and then the shut down in the threat of deabt default. all of us represent people who are going to win or lo
as a top prosecutor of the county level in massachusetts and then went on to be elected lieutenant governor, and two years later he was elected to the united states senate where he served 28 years. the last four of those years he served as the chairman of the senate foreign relations committee, developing relations around the world with world leaders. in fact, -- every foreign policy issue for the united states over the past three decades. this year he became the first sitting chairman of that committee in over a century to become secretary of state. and just two weeks ago i was honored to travel to asia with senator kerry where we pushed forward key administration initiatives like the trans-pacific partnership. our nation is very lucky to have someone with secretary carries knowledge, and global reach in this leadership position. ladies and gentlemen, let's give a warm welcome to a national hero, a man who has dedicated his life to serve the united states and a tireless can do later who is tackling the tough global issues facing our world. lease help me welcome my friend, secretary of stat
trillion of spending cuts into law." as our democratic friends like to say these days, elections matter, and the president explicitly, explicitly staked his reelection on the back of these bipartisan spending cuts. i mean, just look at the exit polls from november. a majority of americans said that the government was doing too much. about two-thirds said raising taxes to cut the deficit was a nonstarter. and compared to obamacare, which more voters actually said they wanted to repeal, these levels of support are striking. so if our friends on the other side want to keep trying to claim an electoral mandate for maintaining obamacare contradicted by the facts as that phaoeurbgs while using their own logic we had to call the mandate for reducing the size of government a super mandate. that's why their new plan to undo the cuts the president campaigned on and increase the debt is so outrageous. we hear that the senior senator from new york will soon announce a proposal to give the permanent -- give the president permanent power to borrow more. in other words, he wants to extend the debt cei
that upon, if he wins election, upon realizing that he is responsible for the management of the city as he will realize that it's in everybody's interest, including his own, to be able to manage the police department on his own without the interference of a federal judge. i don't know if that addresses the question. stop and frisk is a pregnant topic. people use it, i think, with very different understandings of what they are referring to. i think we all know it is a standard traditional law enforcement practice, like that in new york city like every other department in the country. we believe it's done properly. i don't think that will change. >> okay, another question. there was a lady here, yes. >> hello, katherine from the treasury department. first of all, thank you for your courage and your dedication. it's much appreciated. i had a quick comment and a question. the comment is, really, the agreement only covers terrorism, not organized crime, but luckily, not for treasury, but for other people, on the same day the european parliament voted to suspend the recommendation, votedded to r
